We might not be thinking too much about our holidays for the time being, with the UK still in a fairly strict lockdown, but we can still dream, can’t we? One day we will be able to go on holiday again, and we’re sure a lot of us are already planning our first post-lockdown excursion, at least to the countryside, if not abroad.
With everything that has happened in 2020, It is important to think about how much online shopping we will be doing in the future. This series of lockdowns mixed with the Christmas shopping rush has formed new habits for a lot of people who will rely on online purchases rather than in-person shopping in the future, with or without the pandemic.
It may be hard to imagine, but a lot of people actually reschedule a holiday or even forgo it altogether in order to receive a package. If you are going to be receiving packages weekly in the future, when can you then go on holiday? You can’t actually leave your new TV, or smartphone, or even a new clothing item behind the bins for a week.
This is why having an outdoor parcel box is now very necessary if you want to go on holiday. Here are the reasons why this deceptively simple metal box can provide unprecedented freedom:
Order While on Holiday
We have all been there, scrolling through our phones doing a bit of online window shopping while on holiday, but ending up not ordering anything in case it arrived while we were still on holiday.
Imagine being able to do your online shopping as usual while you were on holiday and being able to have the item delivered while you’re lying on the beach. Moreover, you could have it waiting for you the second you get back home!
Some people request the courier to leave their delivery with a neighbour or to leave it in a super-secure location for a friend to pick up later that day. How do you know the package won’t get stolen before your friend can pick it up or that your neighbour will actually be in to take possession?
It could save you a lot of heartache and worry if your packages could be delivered to a safe box right outside your own front door.
More Holiday Opportunity
We all love a spontaneous holiday, but what if you had to decline the offer of a holiday because you were expecting a delivery that couldn’t be cancelled or required a large fee to be cancelled? A lot of people would turn down the holiday in order to receive their package, which is just sad! This is a major reason why an outdoor parcel box can give you more time to soak up the sun while it patiently awaits your packages, storing them safely until your return.
If you would like to make the most of your holidays and not worry about a pending delivery, check out our shop and find a parcel box that suits your needs.
